National Cinema and Cultural Identity: Ireland in Europe

Martin McLoone

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    This article considers Irish cinema in its local, European and global contexts and argues that because Hollywood increasingly speaks with a globalising voice then competing voices, rooted in local cultures, have become more important and necessary. Irish cinema, as a small national cinema, represents one example of the national local speaking to the global with an indigenous address.
